Our three signature events, Hike for Hope, Drive for Dignity Golf Tournament and Sharing our Bounty Gala, are all highly-regarded and wildly popular with sold-out crowds at both our Drive for Dignity and Sharing Our Bounty.

The Drive for Dignity event is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to promote your business and connect with C-Level executives in the community.

Our Hike for Hope, a three-mile walk, run and roll is an excellent way to receive positive exposure in the Merrimack Valley while team building and making a real difference in people’s lives.
